The Computer Screen is relatively popular in Germany with 92.7% of all gamers playing on it. Although quite a lot of the German gamers play on the personal screen/smartphone (68.7%) – the adoption of tablet gaming is still falling behind and this is one of the reasons that the floating screen (30.8%) is relatively unpopular in Germany. This slow adoption of tablet gaming is further highlighted in the app store game revenues country rankings, with Germany scoring low in the iPad chart at position #8, significantly behind Russia for example. Also worth noting is the relatively high ranking of Germany in the monthly game revenues of the Google Play Store. In this ranking, typically dominated by Asian countries – Germany is at number 4.
